Lot of good choices this year, none of the slams were duds. I would say Wimbledon wins though as it contained two important GOAT race matches.

The best slam had the best players :)

Australian Open 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 8, 14, 16, 22, 28, unseeded
Australian Open 2019, Semi-finals = 1, 2, 14, 28

Roland Garros 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, 24
Roland Garros 2019, Semi-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 4


Wimbledon 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 8, 21, 23, 26, unseeded
Wimbledon 2019, Semi-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 23

US Open 2019, Quarter-Finals = 2, 3, 5, 13, 20, 23, 24, unseeded
US Open 2019, Semi-finals = 2, 5, 24, unseeded

And the only top 8 seeds to miss the Roland Garros QF was Tsitsipas (lost to French Open Champ Wawrinka-24) and Del Potro (lost to rising star Khachanov-10).

Wimbledon had the epic final, which admittedly wasn't the highest in quality, but was high in drama. We had a Fedal semi which was both more interesting and more competitive than the RG semi. We had Bautista Agut's run, plus a great early match in Kyrgios-Nadal.

RG was affected by poor scheduling but it had some good matches (Waw-Tsit etc)

USO had a great final. Good stuff from Berrettini and Medvedev

AO clearly the worst

I would say the other 3 are at a similar level, but the epic Big 3 final gives Wimbledon the edge. None of the slams were as good as Wimbledon last year IMO
 
Wimbledon was boring until the final. USO had some classics even before the final, like Federer-Dimitrov and Monfils-Shapovalov. And the final was one of the decade's best matches.
Federer and Dimitrov was no contest in the 5th set as Federer was struggling physically. That match is NOT a classic.
 
Not Wimbledon. You can't have the slam of the year where a pusher who wins less points wins the slam over a talented shotmaker like Roger.
 
Voted for USO. It's not just because Nadal won it, but because of how he won it. He beat a few decent opponents before the final, and Medvedev was playing great in the final, GOATing at some moments. A very high quality match, much higher quality than Wimbledon final IMO.

Medvedev is a worthy contender for Slams now. Zverev can grind out 5 set marathons against nobodies, but he hasn't taken it to a top player like Medvedev did.
I haven't seen many players use crowd energy better than he did in the final, they literally helped him win 2 sets it was scary :eek:

I'd go with USO. Much less stress. Wimbledon was a bit too much. I didn't enjoy it in the end. Though I was very happy for Nole.

Of course Wimbledon is winning the poll though. Djokovic fans obviously vote for it, and most Federer fans will never vote for a slam which Nadal won. For many of them 40-15 was much easier to take than Nadal winning another USO. :-D :-D :-D :-D
So what sucked more for Fed fans? That Federer lost to Djokovic again at Wimbledon or losing from 40-15 a winning position regardless who the opponent was?

Tournament becomes #1 instantly once Nadal wins an epic 5 setter final like the good old times so USO


Nadal was so awesome, delivering memorable matches time and time again

Gotta be Wimbledon. Australia really disappointed after a stellar couple of years, Roland Garros was alright, US Open had two awesome matches, and not much else of note. Wimbledon had the dramatic, epic final, the spectacle of Federer-Nadal, the good record Bautista-Agut had against Djokovic during the year making their match seem more exciting than it had any right to be, the badASS Nadal-Kyrgios grudge match, Wawrinka-Opelka's David and Goliath epic, Querrey-Sandgren playing a legit grass court match, plus Medvedev-Goffin and Schwartzman-Berrettini were two of the years best matches, and a bunch of other good stuff besides (Dan Evans late night battle on mid-Saturday, Big Sam rolling back the years, Tsitsipas and Dimitrov's dramatic first round falls, etc.) It was probably the best slam since Australia '17. Awesome stuff.

Some members underestimate AO in this thread, although 2019 event was not rich in great matches like 2017 event, but I could name a few good or exciting matches here - Nishikori-Busta, Bautista-Murray, Raonic-Wawrinka, Nishikori-Karlovic or Tsitsipas-Federer. Tsitsipas' run into the SF and AO 2019 is happened the first GS event with two members Next Gen in QF (Tsitsipas and Tiafoe). The final was one of Nole's most dominant performances in his GS finals. For me, AO 2019 was not disappointing ;)

Semi-Pro
Roland Garros 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, 24
Roland Garros 2019, Semi-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 4


Wimbledon 2019, Quarter-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 8, 21, 23, 26, unseeded
Wimbledon 2019, Semi-Finals = 1, 2, 3, 23

US Open 2019, Quarter-Finals = 2, 3, 5, 13, 20, 23, 24, unseeded
US Open 2019, Semi-finals = 2, 5, 24, unseeded

And the only top 8 seeds to miss the Roland Garros QF was Tsitsipas (lost to French Open Champ Wawrinka-24) and Del Potro (lost to rising star Khachanov-10).
And yet the only match from the quarters onward whose outcome was in doubt was Djokovic-Thiem and that was marred by the horrific weather.
